Buon compleanno to the old-school Italian American rocker Dion DiMucci. He turned 84 today. Dion was born on July 18, 1939 in the Belmont neighborhood in the Bronx.
“Runaround Sue” is a rock and roll song (in a modified doo-wop style), originally a US No. 1 Hot 100 hit (No. 4 on the Hot R&B chart) for the singer Dion during 1961, after he split with the Belmonts. It was written by Dion with Ernie Maresca, and tells the story of a disloyal lover. The song ranked No. 351 on the Rolling Stone list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time“.
